There was a point in my life when I wanted to be a fish.
What type of fish? No preference. I guess I just wanted to be able to live underwater. I remember looking at fish in children’s picture books and reading about their fictional lives in the sea.
Do I still want to be a fish? Not really– but perhaps metaphorically, I would, if the ocean represents an escape from human society. (Assuming there are no threats to my life in the ocean from predators and such).
Anyways, I visited the SEA Aquarium in Singapore and I became reminded of these childhood fantasies.
If you are fascinated by marine life, I’d say this aquarium in Singapore is worth a visit. However, I did not feel it was significantly better or different than the other aquariums I have been to.
Maybe as a child, I would have enjoyed it more.
After the aquarium, I explored a bit of Sentosa Island. I liked this candy shop called, ‘Candylicious’.
I think I really did feel like a child that day.
Sometimes, I really miss being a child. I’m sure a lot of people do.
Ironic, since being an adult seemed so much more favorable when I wasn’t one yet.
